This bill directs the New Jersey Turnpike Authority and the South Jersey Turnpike Authority to equip service areas along the toll roads under their jurisdiction with electric vehicle charging stations which would charge plug-in electric motor vehicles. The charging stations are required to be installed in at least five percent of service area parking spaces in service areas with no less than 100 spaces to which the public is invited. The authorities are directed to recover costs associated with the charging stations from motorists who use the stations, according to their use. The promotion of electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles, and the infrastructure needed to recharge them, would serve to reduce the purchase of foreign petroleum that supports an estimated 75 billion on-road vehicle miles traveled annually in the State. New Jersey citizens, businesses, and institutions pay billions of dollars each year to foreign oil suppliers for the gasoline and diesel fuels needed for that travel.
